    The national flag of Estonia (Eesti lipp) is a tricolour featuring three equal horizontal bands of blue (top), black, and white. The recommended size for the flag is 105 cm × 165 cm (41 in × 65 in). First adopted on 21 November 1918 after its independence, it was used as an national flag until 1940 when the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany (1941–44) illegally occupied Estonia. After World War II, from 1944 to 1990, the Soviet Estonian flag consisted first of a generic red Soviet flag with the name of the republic, then changed to the red flag with a band of blue water waves near the bottom. The Estonian flag, which was also used by the Estonian government-in-exile, was officially re-adopted 7 August 1990 one year before its official restoration of independence.
